Pandemic Express – Zombie Escape Early Access Review

Though Pandemic Express is slightly barebones at this point in Early Access, it definitely has the potential to be a unique and impressive addition to the world of multiplayer zombie games.

Xenon Racer Review

Ideal for casual players or arcade racing fans not looking for too much of a challenge, Xenon Racer has pretty environments, futuristic cars, and varied tracks.

Generation Zero Review

An interesting take on the post-apocalyptic genre, full of beautiful vistas and a streamlined interface. Moments of awe are punctuated with run-ins with the buggy and inconsistent AI.

Tropico 6 Review

Tropico 6 involves a huge time investment and a steep learning curve, but it is a solid entry in the management/sim genre.

Fate/EXTELLA LINK Review

Fate/EXTELLA LINK, with its rich cast of characters, might just remind you what you love about the hack-and-slash genre.

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 Review

An improvement over its predecessor, with visuals that wow. Occasionally repetitive combat and an unengaging story are the main flaws that might deter budget-conscious gamers from buying at full price.

Sid Meier's Civilization® VI: Gathering Storm Review

Bringing a new level of complexity and strategy with it, Gathering Storm forces you to participate in diplomacy in later eras and offers new ways to succeed with certain play styles.

RICO Review

The core breaching and shooting mechanics never get old, but gameplay, sound design, and co-op mode all have some problems.

DEAD OR ALIVE 6 Review

It looks better than its predecessor, but content-wise its rather stingy and the story needs work, dampening excitement for this title.

ACE COMBAT 7: SKIES UNKNOWN Review

A great Ace Combat title that follows its past formula too closely, giving you the great flight simulator you expect and no more.

Project Winter Early Access Review

Project Winter provides a refreshing take on the multiplayer survival genre and offers up some substantial promise, but is hindered by a variety of technical problems. With eight players per round, you and your fellow survivors must work together to survive the frigid landscape around you and combine your resources to call for help, all while avoiding the traitors among you and the vicious wildlife searching for their next meal. It’s a brutal world out there, and you can’t survive it alone.

JUMP FORCE Review

While a fighting game featuring a wide variety of Weekly Shonen Jump characters seems like a no-brainer, the shoddy execution and surprisingly limited roster hinder JUMP FORCE from being the all-star it wants to be.

Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon Review

An auto-moving strategy game, Swords and Soldiers 2: Shawarmageddon is a comic adventure with surprising strategic depth.

Desert Child Review

Desert Child attempts to capitalize on nostalgia with a mish-mash of references from different decades. There are some mildly funny moments, but other than that it’s a side-scrolling shooter dressed up in a cyberpunk motif.

Override: Mech City Brawl Review

Override is an interesting take on the fighting genre. Sadly, what it has in imagination it lacks in mechanical depth.

World War 3 Early Access Review

World War 3 had a rocky launch and will hopefully be fully redeemed by the development staff. The gameplay combined with the deep customization really does complete a modern military shooter dream. This title offers players the ability to be in full control of their gear and character, all while being fun. While this title is in the infant stages of Early Access, it shows great promise to be a fantastic experience in the long run. While map variation and different weapon choices and game modes seem to be limited as of now, I am sure we will see more and more content added in the future. Godspeed, The Farm 51.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Review

While this gritty, gory, fast-paced title is worth your time, it’s not necessarily worth its asking price.

Hands-On: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead

From the developers of PayDay 2 comes the zombie-smashing, bandit-blasting, loot-scavenging, 4-player co-op title, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead (OTWD). While this title is set to release on November 6th, the beta weekends have begun and testing is well underway for the pre-order masses. Bugs are plentiful and “clunkiness” is fairly rampant, but that’s what betas are for, right?

Green Hell Early Access Review

Green Hell is a brand new, single-player survival game from Creepy Jar. Its title does it justice. The game is extremely challenging and the struggle for survival is ever-present as you navigate the seemingly endless Amazon jungle.

SCUM Early Access Review

Scum is a fresh, deep, immersive, and enjoyable survival title. Prepare to fight, loot, and scavenge, and even satisfy the human body's most basic needs. Your time in Scum will not be dull, but you may desync from the servers or find some teleporting lag warriors around the airfield.
